In this workshop, we’ll present the relationship between clinical problems, the habitual issues of the nine personality styles, and basic human needs for safety/certainty, connection/care, and worthiness/satisfaction. You’ll learn how to use the Enneagram to identify core personality issues, especially as these relate to the highly distressing emotions of fear, separation distress, and anger, which are often at the core of clients’ difficulties.
